I found this great old desk at my son's school. They had no more use for it and had thrown it away. I had the idea that I would redo it and donate it back as a prize for an upcoming fundraiser. I think it came out great. We found a chair from the same time frame that paired up great with it. I hope they earn some money from it.

I did these great two old trunks. One was a terrific cedar chest that needed a little help. The customer wanted scroll work on the trunk. She was going to put it in her bedroom and she had blue walls and brown bedding. She gave me a sample of the scroll pattern that she wanted. I love how it looks. The other trunk was for a customer that already had purchased a bed and wanted this trunk painted to match to sit at the foot of the bed. I love the shade of purple. I would like to do more things in this color.

I did these prayer plaques for a catholic school tricky tray. I love the angel one. I think I will do more of that one.
I also did a prayer plaque (no picture) of my own favorite (and made up) prayer:
Please put your arm around my shoulder
and your hand across my mouth.
That is my personal mantra. www.handpaintedbycookie.com

We have a big sale going on at the store right now. We did this after Christmas last year also. We would like to clear out some of the furniture so that we can stock up with some new things for spring. Come in and see all the great deals we have right now. Get it before it's gone.
